Army of One, a movie review

A movie review: By Lee Sonogan

(2016) R/1h32min/Comedy


In a movie starring Nicolas Cage and Russel Brand, Gary Faulkner the main character hunts down Osama Bin Laden under the direction of god. Strange enough, this movie is based on true events. The name of this movie is the recruiting slogan that was used by the United States Army between 2001 and 2006. Russel Brand plays the character of God in this movie like a boss.

The movie was directed by Larry Charles, the director of the movies Borat and Bruno. He is also a producer to many well-known tv sitcoms as Seinfeld and more. Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman wrote the movie script. Their skill of writing is interesting to take with a director known for different style movies.

“They don’t call me the psychic wizard for nothing” – Gary Faulkner

Overall, Nicolas cage plays a character in a way that he can play well, depending on how annoying you see the character. His portrayal of an American patriot is funny as it gets. Just how he responds to people when they say he won’t make it to Pakistan. It is a bit indie but is a very satisfying movie if you like crazy cage movies. The narrator in the movie adds even more interest to the weird crazy story. I recommend this movie if you want a different comedy movie with an interesting story and concept.
